An illegal alien was shot after attacking a U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) agent near the Rio Grande in Texas this week, according to reports.

The incident unfolded on Thursday afternoon in Quemado, a town on the Mexican border approximately 20 miles northwest of Eagle Pass.

During an enforcement action near the border river, a Del Rio Sector USBP agent was reportedly assaulted by a male illegal.

“Agents were tracking a group that was trying to evade in the Quemado area,” NewsNation correspondent Ali Bradley reported, citing Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sources.

“One agent attempted to apprehend the individual who reportedly started fighting back—That’s when the agent fired his weapon, injuring the man.”

Border Hawk correspondent Efraín González confirmed Bradley’s reporting from his position on the Mexican side of the border in Piedras Negras.

González says the injured illegal, who is approximately 30 years old, was treated at Fort Duncan Regional Medical Center in Eagle Pass.

The USBP agent was also treated for non-serious injuries.

CBP says an investigation is ongoing.

Last month, an illegal alien who stabbed multiple illegals on Texas soil fled back into Mexico after being shot by a National Guardsman near El Paso.
